Former Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel is heading to the City of Brotherly Love.
Daniel has agreed to terms on a multi-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan. Daniel was one of the most sought-after free agent quarterbacks after spending the past three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. Philadelphia recently signed starter Sam Bradford to a two-year deal.
Daniel is widely regarded as a quality backup. He’s started only two games during his six-year career. He has thrown for 464 yards with one touchdown and one interception during stints with the Chiefs and New Orleans Saints.
Daniel started three seasons for Missouri from 2006-08. He won the 2007 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year award and finished fourth in Heisman Trophy voting that same season. He signed with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent before going to New Orleans in 2009.
